I love both versions of the book cover! But the second is amazing 'cause you'll wonder who is she looking for/staring at.

Dwayne said...

I love the final version more - but come on, who'd not love that alternate version? Drew is so sexy!

PS. You're almost CRUEL for putting that extract. I mean come on, I nearly strangled my sister in excitement!

Jennifer said...

I really like the cover with both Nora and Patch. Makes it more exciting to see what comes next with their relationship. I just read Hush Hush the other day and I could not put it down. I finished in 8 hours and I can't wait for Crescendo!!

hugs!!

JennM said...

I love the real cover, but I also Love that they let us post the one with Patch :-) I mean a girl can't have too much Patch to look at LOL

Bwyatt said...

I LOVE both covers. And I totally agree that you most certainly cannot have enough Patch to look at! I can't wait to read the book and find out more about that rain either! Kinda sets a sexy mood if you know what I mean. :o)

Hush Hush Sweden said...

I love both covers, but the alternate cover is BEAUTIFUL. I almost love it more than the orginal cover... ALMOST. And wow. That cookie was SOOO mean! so so so mean! Now I want that book even more, if that's even possible!

paola said...

both covers are amazeing, but i do feel the secound cover wins me over more:) just because nora looks at the lightning stirks at the time nora looks back from walking away almost as if to say" shes done with it and doesnt wont to fight anymore, or do i?" in in the end i think you did the right thing by choseing the secound cover. i really cant wait to read crescendo, im making my mom take me to the book store RIGHT after school i already told her that shes taking me on the day same day the book comes out :). becca, you remind me alot of p.c cast and lauren kate, just because of your GREAT writerness:)

Maidenveil said...

The cookie was enough to give me pain right now. But i like it. :p

The alternate cover was sexxxxy. It's enough to set things on fire! LOL.

I believe Drew did a lot to help push the first book along....he picked up a lot of fans and interest grew & the buzz about Hush Hush spread like wildfire. Drew should have been included on the second books cover, so I like the book cover that didn't quit make it....I hope they learn from that and make sure he is part of the last in the series.
You can guess I'm "Team Patch"

I like the final version better. I mean the alternate version is awesome but the stormy scene on the final version is really pretty and I think it sort of fits Crescendo better.

Anya said...

I LOVE all of it! Seriously you guys are soo awesome! I love both the alternate and the actual cover and the cookie...*swoon*...need I say more? hahah. I', soo excited for Crescendo!
Great cover week you guys and thanks for the awesome contest :)

melimiranda said...

Oh God! Give me more COOKIES please!!!!!! When I read those lines I was like: Breathe girl, breathe :D Then you almost gave a heart attack when I saw that stunning cover, I screamed for a very good ten seconds. My brother came in to my bedroom asking: What! WHAT! haha I can tell he was ready to fight a thief. LOL.

I already pre-ordered Crescendo, I wish the release day could come FASTER! Like RIGHT NOW!

I wanna read it really badly. Thank you guys for doing the contest and good luck to all of us angels!

Louise said...

I cant decide between the covers. They're both so amazing. I'm honestly torn.
Btw- I acidentally messed up my email adress the first time I submitted my name into the form, so I had to do it again with the right one. Apologies !

Books For You said...

I love both the covers, They are sooooooooo amazing!!!!!!! I like the earlier one because you don't know why Nora is looking back at patch, it's just so mysterious!! And i like the covr it has now because you don't know why she's standing there in the rain. teh first thing that came into my micd was "Did Patch break her heart????????" Like i said, both covers are amazing! 2 thumbs up for both of them! (4 thumbs up :P)

Victoria said...

I think both covers are amazing. How did you ever choose?

hallezandra said...

cant wait for crescendo! love both covers but the one with nora and patch is just awesome =)

The Beginning of A Pastry Chef said...

Both covers are beautiful! Very well done. They have a lot of feeling to them; not just another average book cover.

Overflowing Shelf said...

Cannot wait to read Crescendo. I love both photos. James Porto is an amazing photographer, but I think I like the alternate cover better, probably cause Patch is there lol. I just think the alternate cover is pretty and it shows who nora is looking at.

Gabby C. said...

I can't lie; i LOVED the alternative cover because Patch(Drew) was on it:$ i feel bad knowing someone had to make a decision between the two covers because they are BOTH such great pieces and like someone eles typed above*The Beginning of A Pastry Chef* saying that Hush Hush and Crescendo are NOT like those covers where you can tell not much thinking went into them considering ALL aspects of making a cover for a novel-->*I was walking down the stairs in Indigo when i looked back "like a calling" i saw Hush Hush cover and decided that i NEEDED that book and ran back up the stairs and purchased the BEST book of my life:D yup yup true story;)<3*... so with that im going to say that ethier cover would of been the RIGHT choice lol buhh... i guess choosing the one you did with nora looking back was still a great choice because that leaves us with suspense of wondering who's she looking at?, why she's looking back?, is something happening behind?; a big scene maybe!?, etc. Sooo... yeah that's my thoughts on the two covers=P
* & I'm still waiting here rocking back in forth in my rocking chair with my heart aching that Crescendo isn't out yet and knowing that such a scene is in the book *the cookie* provided:'(* *tear drop* xD @ rocking chair

Thayn√° said...

Drew is SO sexy! But I guess I prefer the actual cover... Don't know why! haha.
It's pretty amazing, and I can't wait to read Crescendo! Hush Hush is SO good, that is for SURE Crescendo is going to be even better!
And I'm sure I'll fall in love for Patch again :) HAHA!
xoxo

A Simple Love of Reading said...

I love the cover with Patch and Nora, it feels more emotional to me than Nora on her own.

GAH! I want to read this book NOW! Stop teasing me!

thehtic said...

Is it to late to switch covers? The original with patch is beautiful!

Khelsea @ Once upon a review said...

I really like both, but the one with patch is amazing!!

Katrina W said...

Wow love the first one,,I personally wouldve picked that one ;) but really I just cant wait to read it !!!! The original sucked me in.. it left me wanting it now !!! and the second cover left me wandering what nora is looking at or for hmmmmm...
Katrina :)

Dawn-Marie said...

The cookie was a real teaser for sure! Cant wait to read it :). I liked both the covers - But I would have probably picked the first one as well.

hla_s2 said...

LOVES the cover with patch too! :D

hoghtonsummers93 said...

I really love the one that didn't quite make it... but I can see why they went for the one with just Nora- to create intrigue. I think they should have done a compromise and 'stretched' the picture so that it was just Nora on the front cover but when you put the book down (with the pages of the book touching the surface) 'patch' would be on the back cover. The cover was what drew:) me towards hush hush in the bookshop.... still a great cover even without 'patch' I guess.

Drew... <3<3<3

I say the cover they used because i'm a sucker for an air of mystery ;D
